Tubi Greenlights Adult Animated Comedy Breaking Bear


Tubi has ordered Breaking Bear, an adult animated comedy executive produced by Blink-182 front man Tom DeLonge and Cartel Entertainment.

Created by Julien Nitzberg (The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia), Breaking Bear follows the escapades of three bear siblings who decide they have to start selling drugs in order to raise money and save their home after gas companies start fracking next to their cave. The bears soon enlist other forest animals in a scheme to pit them against oil companies, the Russian Mafia, local Hell’s Angels and polar bears who hate anything that isn’t white.

The series is produced by Cartel Entertainment (Creepshow, Twelve Forever, Day of the Dead) and DeLonge’s To The Stars Media (Monsters of California, Unidentified). In addition to DeLonge, executive producers are Stan Spry (Creepshow, Day of the Dead), Jeff Holland (Creepshow, Day of the Dead), Bradford Bricken (Twelve Forever) and Eric Woods (Creepshow, Harland Manor). Nitzberg is an executive producer and showrunner.

“When Cartel pitched a series with cartoon animals as mobsters, I knew it was an offer I couldn’t refuse,” said Adam Lewinson, chief content officer at Tubi. “This is the perfect project to expand our adult animation offering after the stellar success of The Freak Brothers, cementing Tubi as a destination for adult humor.”
